Awareness

Did you know? 95% of tumors detected early are cured

As the disease is often asymptomatic and surrounded by unfounded taboos, men are still reluctant to seek an annual screening test from their doctor (blood test APS and rectal examination).

Simple and fast, this test can detect cancer tumors at an early stage, which greatly improves the success rate of treatments.

Prostate cancer in Quebec

  • 4600 men are diagnosed each year
  • 12 men per day
  • 900 men die of prostate cancer every year in Quebec
  • 3rd cause of cancer death
  • 24% of new cancer cases
  • 40% of diagnoses affect men aged 60-69
  • Only 56% of Quebeckers know that prostate cancer affects only men ...
